Christelle Familiari obtained her DNSEP (Advanced degree in Arts) in 1995 at the École régionale des beaux-arts in Nantes. Her work for the past fifteen years has made use of a wide variety of different practices, including video, performance, sculpture, and installation. At first developed as an examination of questions surrounding the body, our relationship to others, and gesture(s), her work can now be understood as a metaphor of the artist's tactile relationship with her environment. C. Familiari lives and works in Rennes and teaches at EESAB Rennes.
